The 'Lazy Song' singer performed at the fashion event in between recording for his second studio album.

Bruno Mars dressed up for the Met Gala event in New York City this week while wearing his curly hair natural instead of in his trademark pompadour style.

The 'Just The Way You Are' singer wore a navy blue tuxedo and dark shades for the star-studded event on Monday evening (7th May), which also saw him take to the stage for a well-received performance.

Bruno belted out some of his best hits as well as covers including The Police's 'Roxanne' and Michael Jackson's 'Dirty Diana', while Azealia Banks and Alicia Keys performed at the event's Prada after-party.

The 'Grenade' singer-songwriter is currently working on his second album, the follow-up to 2010's 'Doo-Wops & Hooligans', and tweeted fans yesterday (8th May) to say he was locking himself in the recording studio until the record is completed.
